About Thorndon

This village still has some fine rustic cottages. Moat Farm once had a fine set of fish ponds with an outlook platform to guard them from the unwanted attention of local herons.

An early Medieval cemetery has been uncovered at White House Farm. A post mill dating from 1797 stood in The Street until it was hit by lightning in 1923 and demolished.

Kerrison Reformatory was once a school for wayward children and was located in the parish from its formation in 1856 to 1973, when it became a Community Home.

Thorndon was recorded in Domesday as "Tornduna", "Torneduna!" or "Torentuna".
